Bishop Kulick Appoints New Catholic Schools Superintendent
GREENSBURG, Pa, April 6, 2022 — After eight years as Superintendent of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Greensburg, Dr. Maureen Marsteller has announced her retirement effective June 24, 2022. She planned to retire in 2020, but agreed to remain as superintendent to help students, families and principals navigate the unique challenges of COVID-19, including the transition to virtual learning, the development of COVID-19 mitigation protocols and the return to in-person instruction.
Bishop Larry J. Kulick expressed his gratitude for the vision she provided to the 12 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Greensburg, particularly during the pandemic.
“During Dr. Marsteller’s 45-year career as an educator, she was a true advocate for the spiritual and educational development of students. We sincerely thank her for her many years of faithful service,” Bishop Kulick said.
Dr. Marsteller has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education and a Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from Duquesne University, as well as a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Pittsburgh. She was the Assistant Principal at St. Louise de Marillac School and Principal of Oakland Catholic High School in the Diocese of Pittsburgh prior to leading the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Greensburg.
“It has been a true blessing and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to serve others and support Catholic education as the Superintendent of Schools. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to work alongside outstanding leaders and amazing school communities to help others achieve their full potential as servants of God,” Dr. Marsteller said.
